Giving Old Books New Life

When I first opened Anthology On Main, it was a potpourri kind of shop where I was able to express my diverse love of arts and crafts. Little did I know when I added book page items, that my story had only just begun!

Now my shop is solely focused on book page items: bridal bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages, gifts and more. Every single flower is handmade by myself. I start each flower with a single flat page, then hand cut it, hand form it, and secure it with glue. The process is lengthy, but love is poured into each flower I make.

Because books are my medium, I strongly believe it is important to recycle as well as promote literacy. I only purchase used books for use in my items. Some books come from the 'discard' shelf of my local library, others come from a company who donates one book to someone in need for every book I buy.

In addition to responsible sourcing of materials, I believe it is also important to support our local communities. 10% of each sale from my shop is donated to an organization with a mission of helping underprivileged children and women in the Kansas City area. Past charities include Backpacks for Hunger, A Child's Hope and Veronica's Voice. To date, your purchases have directly provided 50 children who are at risk of weekend hunger with backpacks of food every weekend for the entire school year! You've also been a part of providing over 100 teens aging out of the foster care system with basic necessities they will need to start living independently, provided funding to help women who are being trafficked or prostituted to rebuild their lives, as well as provide funding to help children of physical and sexual abuse seek the emotional and legal support they deserve.

Returns and exchange details
A non-custom order - an order for which no color selection, book selection, or any other customizations were selected by you - may be canceled as long as the order has not been marked as "shipped".


Sometimes a package has gone through a lot before it is delivered. Because of this, all orders are shipped with insurance. If there is a problem with your order, please contact me within 3 days of receipt of your order to discuss options of replacement or refund. It is also important that you keep and photograph all damage to the item(s) and packaging, as this information will be necessary for filing a claim with the delivery carrier.


Non-custom orders may be returned for a refund of the purchase price minus original shipping costs. You are also responsible for payment of return postage. Once the item has been received by me in the same condition in which it was originally shipped, your refund will be issued. It is recommended that you purchase insurance and tracking on your return shipment.

Custom orders may NOT be returned as the item has been specifically customized to your unique specifications.
I accept most major credit cards via Etsy's Direct Checkout, as well as Paypal payments.

All orders shipping to addresses within Kansas will be charged sales tax.
All orders will be shipped via USPS unless alternative methods have been selected.

***Please note that delivery times can vary greatly with USPS and only Express Mail is guaranteed. Once a package has been shipped, I can not control the speed or accuracy of delivery. If delivery of your item is time sensitive, I strongly recommend using UPS.***


Many items are shipped via USPS Priority Mail International, which takes an estimated 6-10 business days for delivery to major markets. Some small items will be shipped via USPS First Class International Mail and can take up to 6 weeks to arrive.

***Please note that delivery times can vary greatly with USPS and only Express Mail is guaranteed. Once a package has been shipped, I can not control the speed or accuracy of delivery.***

You, the customer, are responsible for any and all import duties, taxes, VAT, or other charges imposed by your country. As a resident of your country it is your responsibility to know and understand these fees. Many countries will not deliver a package until all fees have been paid. Most postal services will leave a notice that your item is ready for pickup, however, sometimes these papers "go missing". To help you know when your item has arrived, you will be provided a tracking number upon shipment of your order. It is your responsibility to check for updates on delivery status.

Please be advised that if you are sending a gift directly to someone outside the US, the recipient is still responsible for all taxes, fees, etc. It is unlawful for me, as the seller, to mark an item as a gift. To avoid fees charged to the recipient, please have your order shipped directly to you. As the actual gifter, you can then ship the item to the recipient, denoting it as a gift.
Your information will only be used to fulfill and ship your order. It will not be shared with anyone else - because no one likes spam!
